Macclesfield Museum on the Street

An exciting new project to create a museum on the streets of Macclesfield Town Centre!

Get involved by sharing your views by completing the survey below!






What do you love about Macclesfield?

Are you passionate about the culture and heritage of our town?

What’s your favourite memory of Macclesfield?

We are curating a Museum… on the streets of the town centre and we need your help!!!!!

From fascinating historical facts to quirky anecdotes, we are aiming to have 8 boards/ installations to unveil the very essence of Macclesfield and its character. As you wander, you’ll encounter tributes to Macclesfield’s luminaries, like the iconic Ian Curtis, immortalised by the esteemed artist Akse. And let’s not forget Paradise Mill, a marvel in restoration, where original looms whisper tales of bygone eras and the skilled hands that once operated them. These treasures are just the beginning, for Macclesfield holds a trove of delights waiting to be discovered.

The Town Council’s mission is to increase footfall to our streets, in perfect harmony with the High Street Task Force’s guidance. Imagine stepping off the train at Macclesfield Station to be greeted by a ‘Museum on the Street’ board, beckoning you to dive headfirst into our town’s tapestry of wonders. Need a map? Fear not, for you can easily download one to your device or wander up Church Street to our Visitor Information Centre and grab a paper copy.

So, we want your help! Let us know what you love about Macclesfield! We want to show off everything that our town has to offer!

We will be announcing community engagement events around the town very soon and/or you can fill in the survey below:
